Bill Porter (Red Pine) wrote in his book, “Road to Heaven-Encounters with Chinese Hermits”:

“I could understand someone wanting nothing more than to live a simpler life: inside a cloud, under a pine tree, somewhere out of town, surviving on moonlight, taro and hemp.” ~ Bill Porter

This possibly could be the ideal lifestyle that many people would aspire to, but very few have the luxury of doing so. China’s affluent “Buddha youth”, or “Buddha-like youth” (佛系青年) is a term associated with those born in the 1990s. The term went viral after it appeared on a popular WeChat article, describing the generation born in the 1990s who takes on a more Zen-like way of living, having seen through the vanity of life and opted for a more casual and calm mindset towards career and life.

Li Yu, a postgraduate student at the China Academy of Art lives in a four-storey villa in Hangzhou. Spending 100,000 yuan (around USD14,838), Li Yu single-handedly transformed the plain house he rented from his tutor into a dreamlike wonderland with various flowers and plants in a month. He used to work in several jobs at the same time and traveled around trying to make a lot of money, but now he focuses on living a simple life.

This is the original state of the house before the renovation which cost only 100,000 Yuan

My name is Li Yu (李玉) and I go by my artistic name of Yushui Jun (遇水君). Currently, I am a third-year graduate student at the China Academy of Art. Since my freshman year, I had moved 7 times and the house that I am living in now is 4-storey with a total area of 991 square meters (10,667 square feet). My rental is quite low as this house belongs to my teacher. The renovation of the house took me 30 days to complete at the cost of 100,000 Yuan.

I had arranged for different functions for each floor of the house. The garage on the ground floor had been converted into a shop and a work area for oil painting and block printings. The first floor is where my open kitchen and living room located. The second floor is also my workplace and on the third floor, I have my bedroom, as well as a room for drying flowers.

The dry flower room is one of the places where Li Yu creates his stunning artworks.

Not wishing to spend too much money on permanent fixtures, I did not focus too much on the finishing. For example, I had kept the concrete floor and the walls in their original conditions. I had decorated the areas in the house with jujube trees and bamboos.

The tables, chairs, stools, and workbenches were all bought second hand. The chair that I am sitting on only costs me 50 Yuan for two, and its made from genuine leather. Installing doors were too much trouble, so I resorted to using draperies and bamboo blinds which costs less and matches the colour scheme of the whole house. Many friends had complained about mosquitoes and insects during the summer months. I joked that it is wonderful to be able to feel the bites as it is a sign that you are still alive.

Nature and plants are Li Yu’s main source of inspiration for his work

Nature and plants are Li Yu’s main source of inspiration for his work

I lived in a small village in Loudi (娄底), Hunan (湖南) before I came to Hangzhou (杭州)for the art exam at the age of 17 years old. Everyday I would go out with a bamboo basket on my back to pick wildflowers and grass. Now that I am an entrepreneur, in my studio, I create works of art with the focus on my concept of nature and plants. Starting with simple plants, based on the shapes of the plants and how I feel about them, I would create art by giving it a form or by adding some colours. I may not know many of the plants’ names but that does not stop me from appreciating their beauty.

I never initiate or force my sales but depend on circumstances when the suitable person recognises and appreciates my artwork. If you would like to pay more, I am happy to accept but if you pay a little less, I am also willing to accept. The highest that I had received was over 10,000 Yuan. Some had asked me if I was a rick kid or do I have a sugar-daddy. I wish I am a rich kid but I am not and everything that I had accomplished is through my own effort.

Currently, my life consists of one man, one dog, and three chickens, but one day it became two chickens as one ran away. When the sunbeam shines into the room, I would get up and check on my chickens to see if they are awake and check to see if my dog is still snoring or is he playing.

I like making friends with different people and I started creating different dishes of delicious food for them. My private kitchen had hosted over 16 dinners since September last year. There are no menus and there are no prices. After the meal, they can pay as they like.

My friends often say that my studio is like a retreat centre, like a cave. Maybe my friends think that the way I live is too passive, a young man living like an old man who is living a retired life. The thing is, once I have decided this type of lifestyle, I lowered my workload and material needs to slightly above my lowest acceptable standards. I am able to focus my energy on living the life I wish. Everyday I maintain the passion for living, to do as I wish to do and to live as I wish to live.

    Thank you for the sharing, an empowering article and an extraordinary thoughts of a young man. His thoughts are amazing compare to the young generation in this modern world. I liked his creativity in designing, transforming his living house to a luxury home. I admired his energetic way to earn extra and his passion to contribute to others.

    This article is very interesting, I believe it will be very helpful for those who are working hard to save their earning to buy an affordable home. There are some people who has to go through many challenges in their life just to own a home. While the older generations tend to have very traditional ideas about how people should live, think and behave.

    I had a good read and loved the simplistic way of Li Yu dream.

  2. Yee Yin on Feb 12, 2019 at 6:07 pm

    Li Yu has a very good quality of life. This may come from his upbringing in a village. He is very used to living in harmony with nature and he has such passion for everything around him. He sees insects as part of the environment and he thinks it reminds him that he is still alive, what a positive way to think. He really respects and appreciates everything.

    For a young man like him to realise life is not about money and material possessions, it is quite rare. In the environment we are living, we are constantly reminded that success is about having money and material possessions, it is sometimes hard to live out side the norm. Li Yu also has that problem, his friend thought he is crazy but he knows what he wants and he is firm with it.

    Happiness is really a state of mind, not from external factors. Li Yu doesn’t have a lot but he is happy. But to some people when they look at how Li Yu lives his life, they don’t think it is a happy life. Since our emotions and feelings all come from our mind, then it is important to work on our mind. When we change the way we think, we can help ourselves to become better and happier.

    A simple house yet the design is so creative and cosy. Absolutely beautiful and inspiring. A mixture of nature ,man-made, traditional and modern environment. A young man’s dream is living the life of doing what he loves since young age. Li Yu has created his life in a very simple and light manner. This same mindset he used to renovate the house he lives in. Doing what he loves and living simple focusing on the quality of life. Simple and happy artistic lifestyle!? Thank you Rinpoche and blog team for this lovely article. ????

    Thank you Rinpoche and blog team for sharing the story of this unique young man who is living his dream. His idea about life is fascinating and inspiring. Many people would love to live a life like his which is simple yet content. However, it is not easy to achieve due to the materialism and attachment that most people have, especially people who are around Li Yu’s age.

    What stood out the most to me is how he charges for his artwork and also the private dinners. He does not fix a price on both of them and will accept whatever the buyer will give him. This allows us to know that he is a person that is not attached to money.

    His way of living is totally opposite of what the society is encouraging now. Materialism is huge now and the more is better. Every day, we are brainwashed by the people around us and advertisement that the more is better. Who knows that one can find longer-lasting happiness by being simple? Li Yu is an inspiration to prove to the world that one can live happily with content by being simple.

  5. Sharon Ong on Feb 5, 2019 at 12:54 am

    People his age would usually seek the bright lights of the city and be caught up by materialism. It is refreshing to see how this young man chooses to live his dream. I applaud his courage and wisdom to live a wholesome life.

    Thank you for sharing this. The short clip is stunning, each space is so exquisitely decorated. Love the dried flowers room.

    Absolutely beautiful and inspiring… mixture of nature ,man-made, traditional and modern environment, doing what he loves and living simple focusing on the quality of life. A young man’s dream is living the life of doing what he loves since young age . Everything in his home which he designed is close to nature, simple and a dreamlike wonderland with various flowers and plants. Amazing…he decorated the areas in the house with jujube trees and bamboos, so connected with nature every corner of his 4 stories house. From the video I can see all the space looks so beautiful, tranquil and authentic indeed.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful sharing.

  7. Antoinette Kass on Feb 3, 2019 at 10:25 pm

    Li Yu has created his life in a very simple and light manner. This same mindset he used to renovate the house he lives in, translates also in the way he creates his art, and even how he is being paid.

    In our life, we have many habits, traditions and culture which we want to respect. But maybe it would be better to reflect on how precious our time is and how we can make the best out of it instead of following what we know and what others expect from us.

    It is a beautiful house and way of life that Li Yu has created. Thank you for sharing.

  8. Stella Cheang on Feb 2, 2019 at 2:59 pm

    Li Yu lives his life exactly the way he wants to; focusing on the artistic and creative ways of living while letting go of status and possession. Very nice. It must’ve taken a very discipline and focused mind to be able to live this simplistically in-spite of a chaotic and materialistic world. Thank you for this sharing.

  9. Julia Tan on Feb 2, 2019 at 8:06 am

    把生活水平降到最低、让自己有更多的时间去做想做的事,每天热爱自己的生活,不为自己添加烦恼、就会有更多的时间和去关心身边的事,是一件非常快乐的事。

    一个人不追求物质财富,专注在简单朴素的生活,反而让身心更舒服自在。谢谢尊贵的詹杜固仁波切的分享,克切拉禅修林已经是我们很多向往这种生活的人的家。

  10. Lin Mun on Feb 1, 2019 at 10:33 pm

    A simple house yet the design is so creative and cosy. Would love to live in such a house. Very rare that young people would want to live simple now a days as we are too attach to technology and modern lifestyle. Li Yu lifestyle is a sample of us connecting back to nature and yet still be able to do what he likes. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing Li Yu’s interesting story.

  11. Pastor Han Nee on Feb 1, 2019 at 5:32 pm

    Amazing for the incredibly creative and artistic Li Yu to be able to live each day of his live as though it were a fulfilment of a dream! Such a beautiful way of living one’s life, surrounded by nature and inspired by it to translate its beauty into art!

    Furthermore, although Li Yu has, by choice, been living alone, he is not living selfishly by himself and for himself. He has the company of one dog and two chickens whom he cares for lovingly. Moreover, he invites friends home and serves them meals for which he plans and cooks with passion and care. Like in the case of his art and artistic creations which he sells for a living, he does not demand a high price. Meals cooked by him are paid for “as they like”.

    Li Yu is indeed a beautiful young person, a rarity in today’s world.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this wonderful article on Li Yu.

    Thank you for your kind sharing and reminder for the essentials of drinking water. We commonly hear the advice to drink eight glasses of water a day, to ensure that we are getting enough water to maintain an healthy lifestyle and not for thirst.

    Most healthy people can stay hydrated by drinking water and other fluids whenever they feel thirsty. For some people eight glasses a day might be enough, while others might need more.

    China has a long history in an ancient civilisation dated back to 4,000 BCE. A country filled with many beautiful mountains, highlands, ranges, hills, plains and so forth. Mount Wutai, known Wutaishan is one of them and is a sacred Buddhist site in Shanxi Province. It is one of the four great sacred Buddhist mountains of China as well as a World Heritage Site. A place worth visiting as it is rich in Buddhist culture and has a lot of spectacular natural scenery. With an altitude of 3061.1 m, amazingly gorgeous scenery Mount Wutai as the only one Bodhimanda of both Chinese and Tibetan Buddhism in the world. It has many historic valuable religious sites to admire which is associated with Manjushri a very special place in the more than 1,000 years of Buddhist and Chinese history. Manjushri embodies the perfect wisdom of the universe. China is considered to be the Land of Manjushri where the people are blessed with intelligence. It is also a wonderful place to see the sunrise in the morning from this location. Reading this article remind me of my pilgrimage trip with Kechara.
    Interesting read. It would be easy for anyone going on pilgrimage to see the beauty and sacred place of the Land of Manjushri
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor Adeline for this detailed article.

    Beautiful Shanti Stupa in Pokhara being the first World Peace Pagoda in Nepal . It is a massive Buddhist Stupa with relics of the Buddha, having an immense role to beautify the Pokhara valley. It is situated at Lumbini, the birth place of Lord Buddha. It is a perfect pilgrimage place for some and holiday place to tourist where it provides a clear view of the Himalayan range. The hilltop location also provides a splendid view of sunrise and sunset. Pokhara Peace Stupa is popular with locals, pilgrims and tourists from all over the world. Looking at the beautiful pictures paints a thousand words. Merely looking at the beautiful Shanti Stupa is a blessing.

    The Buddha Statue of Hyderabad is a monolith located in India. It is the world’s tallest monolith of Gautama Buddha, erected on Gibraltar Rock in the middle of Hussain Sagar Hussain Sagar Lake, located in the heart of Hyderabad. Absolutely amazing, architecture carved by 200 sculptors which took them about two years to complete. The statue was chiseled out from a white granite rock. The man behind the iconic monolithic statue is other than the famous sculptor and Indian architect Sattanatha Muthaiya Ganapathi Sthapathi. A magnificent view for one to see at night.

    Thank you for the advice and the sharing. Practicing the Dharma is the best, and not practicing is the worst. Prayer is rooted in the belief that there is a power greater than oneself that can influence one’s life.

    It is very true we must be prepared for our death prior for me to know the Buddha teaching. Dharma is not about just trying to improve oneself. The Dharma is really working for other beings.

    Big statues are such a blessing merely by looking at it. Buddha sculptures serve as visual imagery intended to narrate the various aspects of the Buddha’s life and lessons. Having a Buddha statues in Gompa helps students to accumulate inconceivable merit, to create the cause of enlightenment for oneself and for other sentient beings. Looking at those pictures , all those involved in this no a easy project tells us more. Rejoice. With the guidance of Rinpoche , all goes well to where it is as today. We are indeed very fortunate to have Rinpoche bringing Tibetan Buddhism in Malaysia. For-most having these incredible statues at Gompa and at Kechara Forest Retreat.
    Thank you Rinpoche with folded hands.

    The simplest acts of kindness are by far more powerful than a thousand heads bowing in prayer. In Buddhism, practicing generosity is to help train the mind in a way conducive to attaining enlightenment. Giving serves as a way to eliminate one’s greed and ill-will and expecting nothing in return. By giving away what is valuable, we reduce attachment by letting them go So wonderful of CK Liew giving a gift and card to Rinpoche , with love.

Great idea indeed each and every work of art with meaning behind it. Simply incredible which tells us a thousand words. Rejoice. A mind map of the Lamrim helps us to visualize and organize all the knowledge we need to think and understand better. It is a powerful technique that helps us to visualize our thoughts

    Life is all about growing and developing. We learn through training given by our teachers. Nor matter how hard the training takes is for our own good. Training instils loyalty and commitment , challenges where we learn new skill , knowledge, information for the betterment of this life alone. Those incredible training given by our teacher will shape us , transform us in away to improve self- esteem, motivation, and confidence. Training in the Dharma is teaching us how to leave our samsaric trap and transforming us to be a better person.. At the end of the day it will last us for our whole life and in spiritual terms for lifetimes. Any failures we don’t blame our teacher, its ourselves to blame. Through hardship, patience , we learn. Have a strong will powerful, accept and through determination ,self-belief and hard work, we will get through to where our goal is.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this precious teachings.

    Inspiring reading this beautiful post were there is a lot to learn. Let’s face it. No matter who we are, at some point, we will feel insulted by the remarks of others. Silence is the best solution. The only way to accept an insult is to ignore it. If we do feel like there’s any truth in the insult, make the decision to only take the information that’s helpful to our growth. Then, ignore the rest. Keep calm and control the anger in ourselves. Its our choice whether or not to take it, laugh it off and keep it moving. Quickly forgive and move on.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this profound teachings.

    Buddha, born with the name Siddhartha Gautama, was a teacher, philosopher and spiritual leader who is considered the founder of Buddhism. Born as a prince , gave up everything to become a monk . Saw the outside palace for the first time. Met an old man, a sick person, a corpse being carried to cremation, and a monk in meditation beneath a tree. He had a traumatic encounter with suffering and pain life made him decided to leave behind a Palace life to comprehend the nature of sufferings. Wonderful video to watch.

    Thank you Joy for this sharing of Rinpoche with us . Through reading this post we have a better understanding of Rinpoche. Inspecting the cleanliness of altar and the surrounding of homes is more or unless teachings or training us . With the right motivation and attitude, when we invoke daily doing our sadhana, it becomes easy to collect merits an offering to the Buddhas. Rinpoche extended all the way out, teaching the Dharma as well as seeing students living conditions and welfare. We are so fortunate to have Rinpoche as our teacher who cares more than Rinpoche himself.
    Thank you Rinpoche , may Rinpoche have a swift return , continue turning the wheel of Dharma.

    Wangze is an emanation of Manjushri as an enlightened being, will assist us when we are having to face difficult situations or dealing with difficult people . With a good motivation and right visualisation, Wangze’s practice will remove our obstacles and purify our negative karma. Relying Wangze with trust will assists us to exert control over our own minds our words transforming difficult situations into opportunities.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing of a powerful practice.

    Lama Thubten Phurbu is a well-known and learned Gelug lama and an outspoken Dorje Shugden practitioner who has beneficiated many in Tibet, China and the west as well. He travels occasionally to the West, India and Nepal to give teachings on Lama Tsongkhapa’s precious lineage as well as Dorje Shugden’s practice. A prominent Gelug lama, is at the forefront of spreading Je Tsongkhapa’s tradition, giving teachings on Lamrim and mind transformation in order to propagate Lama Tsongkhapa’s teachings. He even spoke against the Tibetan Leadership ban on Dorje Shugden in Tibet and the harm instigated against Dorje Shugden practitioners. Interesting read of a great Lama.

    Watched this powerful, heartfelt and painful video again . Earthlings is a American documentary film about humanity’s use of other animals as pets, food, clothing, entertainment, and for scientific research. There is a strong and insightful message in this documentary film which took SIX years to make. Not an easy task after all but managed to obtain through hidden camera. More people will be aware of those sufferings of those kill for the human greed exploitation of animals. It also shed light the truth the very truth of the sufferings of those innocent been exploited. Interesting read and great video to watch.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

The Unknown

The Known and unknown are both feared,
Known is being comfortable and stagnant,
The unknown may be growth and opportunities,
One shall never know if one fears the unknown more than the known.
Who says the unknown would be worse than the known?
But then again, the unknown is sometimes worse than the known. In the end nothing is known unless we endeavour,
So go pursue all the way with the unknown,
because all unknown with familiarity becomes the known.
~Tsem Rinpoche

  • What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.

    What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    Sick animals are more profitable... farms calculate how close to death they can keep animals without killing them. That's the business model. How quickly they can be made to grow, how tightly they can be packed, how much or how little can they eat, how sick they can get without dying... We live in a world in which it's conventional to treat an animal like a block of wood. ~ Jonathan Safran Foer

In 2021, we've encountered far too many challenges—Pandemic, months-long lockdown, landslide, and flood. We are proud to witness Malaysians helping one another as these agonies come sequentially. Looking back to 2021, Kechara Soup Kitchen has made significant progress, with more to come in 2022. Every year, we move a little closer to our vision. We are immensely thankful to have such dedicated teams of volunteers willing to go above and beyond for our clients. Not to mention our sponsors and donors; none of this would have been possible without you. Thank you. Thank you for being you. Thank you for helping the underprivileged to a better future. Have a blessed year ahead from our hearts to your hearts. #2022 #newyear #kecharasoupkitchen #kecharafoodbank #kecharaempowerment

Underprivileged residents of two PPRs in Kuala Lumpur recently received a total of 427kg from our longterm surplus produce sponsor, Lotuss Stores (formerly Tesco Stores). The 65 families are our regular beneficiaries, and are grateful to receive fresh vegetables on a consistent basis right at their doorstep. One of our recipients, Rajeswari, 52, single mother of 2 children, shared that she stopped receiving welfare aid due to unforeseen circumstances. Her words: "Saya cakap untuk Kechara [Soup Kitchen] banyak terima kasih sebab kasi makanan. Dan lebih mau tolong orang lain yang susah seperti saya". Our heartfelt thank-you goes to Lotuss Stores for being a dependable source of food aid and for #helpingthepoor with us. #kecharafoodbank #makingadifference #kitajagakita #charity #foodbank #bantuan #ngomalaysia #givingback #strongertogether - Vivian @ Kechara Soup Kitchen

The global pandemic hasn't been easy for all of us. Some find it diffucult to find a job to support the family. Despite that, we are still delivering basic food pack to our recipients nationwide. Thank you to our volunteers, donors, and sponsors. Without your support, we would be unable to reach out to many families. Vivian @ Kechara Soup Kitchen

Thanks to the effort of our outstation team, we were able to mobilise food provisions to 600 families living in Kelantan, Penang, Negeri Sembilan, Melaka and Johor during the Raya period with each of these families receiving RM200 worth of provisions. Adding onto the current 368 families in Klang Valley, a total of 968 families were benefitted from this. Special thanks to the sponsors who have contributed especially Hong Leong Foundation and partially from Tesco Malaysia (where we also ordered the provisions from). ~ Vivian @ Kechara Soup Kitchen

More photos taken from our "Hari Raya Hampers" distribution this week. Making sure everyone of our clients have something to be cheerful about.
